Mordecai's Playlist Inspiration
For my playlist, I wanted to keep with the nostalgic theme I got going on. My cocktail gives off a lot of grungy, distorted vibes because of the color and acidity from the shrub, so I made a playlist of grungy, distorted songs that I listened to growing up because of my parents. My parents are quite young, so I like to believe we grew up together listening to these songs.

October is my favorite month because of Halloween, fall time, and a whole lot of nostalgia. I also believe that apples are a superior fall flavor. From my mom’s apple pie to begging her to buy apple juice at the store to always getting a caramel apple whenever we went to a local pumpkin patch every fall, this month is all about apples to me. So I wanted to take this nostalgic flavor and introduce it to something I’ve never done before: make a shrub. The sweet acidity marries with Jäger in an even better way than I first imagined. The grenadine is there to make it look bloody and scary, hence the name translating to “Hunter’s Blood.”
